As a single mom, I've had to over come a lot things. It's hard doing this alone (it's hard doing it with someone too!). I haven't gotten the final diagnosis...we're just starting out on the evaluation process for Autism. When CJ's pediatrician told me that he might be Autistic it broke my heart. I am sad but at the same time relieved to know what could possibly be going on.
The process has a few more steps to complete before I get a diagnosis for my son. I have my family but they're all out of town. I don't really have any friends (my friends like drama lol) that I can lean on. How do you all of you feel? How did you react when you got the news? Any advice or encouraging words would be great. Thanks!
